Return Flight is the brainchild of writer/director Christian D'Alessi, who produced both feature films Arrowhead and Quanta. Set in the 1950s, this proof of concept short film tells the story of Thomas Parker, a missing test pilot, who returns inexplicably to his family's farmhouse during a storm. He's bruised, broken, and with wings...with the military on his tail. Christian is developing a long form version of this story, a nostalgia-driven adventure in active development.
Written and directed by Christian D'Alessi. Produced by Christian D'Alessi and Jesse O'Brien. Cinematography by Samuel Baulch. Production design by Sasha Dalton.
